UNISON has produced a new protocol and case form following the Conservative-led coalition government’s introduction of fees for Employment Tribunals on 29 July 2013.
UNISON has been, and remains, totally opposed to these fees that will lead to thousands of people being denied workplace justice. We will continue to campaign against them and work for their complete abolition. We are running a legal case to try to stop them coming into effect at all. And UNISON will not expect its members to pay the fees up front.
However, because of these unfair changes to Employment Tribunals, the union has had to update and amend its own procedures to ensure our members have access to the same high level of service they have always had from UNISON, and to ensure that we use members’ subscription monies as effectively as possible. The resources below should help clarify the new procedures.
